B.C Michaels: Went up to Baw Baw on Thursday was pleasantly surprised, summit, tank hill and hut run were groomed very well and the lift tracks were smooth. Heaps of snow for this time of year
When it is good it is very very good.... Noticed that snowmaking area has 10 cm LESS snow than "natural" level. "Natural" level is always pre-rain level, maybe. :out: Just take notice that the cams are current and plan accordingly. :)

Good memories. Kids loved it. Not far away. You will find that the challenge on ungroomed is to ski so efficiently that you can add some turns. Board through the trees is relaxing. Jeep Track depends on unusual snow depth and a keen local to clear it. Rarely stay overnight. Same height as Niseko, when the ice age hits it will be magnificent :) edit: Jeep Track is the old chairlift run. It is not open for skiing, but mountain bikers have found it's 270 meter drop in 1.5 km quite challenging.

BBB, do you ski here?

Being annoyed with Baw Baw and their dodgy reporting of natural snow depths, yesterday (Tuesday) we decided to go cross-country skiing at Mt St Gwinear instead. Got a nice surprise with snow conditions, especially with snow depth and coverage, which meant we could ski all the way to the rock shelter, with zero issues. About 10 cm left at carpark, meaning it's likely to be marginal by the weekend. 45774?w=640&fit=max" />

Thanks for the report, Darzee. Thinking of heading up tomorrow but your report of r**n means I'll carefully reassess in the morning. If I get up there, I'll leave a report here.

Monday 18/6: summit is open to the top, maltese is next by friday depending on staff. A good cover of snow fell overnight and the groomers have left it alone so I got first tracks on both Hut and Summit. Unfortunately the weather has turned and its now r**ning making everything sopping and sticky. I'm going to go have a coffee and hope it stops

bawbawbel: Mmmm. I will definitely drop in if BawBaw will agree to the following rules: 1. Like Hotham, organise to start lifts promptly at 8.30 instead of beginning run survey and hazard marking followed by grooming on closed runs for the whole day, so we don't need to cool our heels and watch the new snow go off before we get at it. 2. After you got a base, leave 2 meters ungroomed after a fall each side of runs like in the old days. Free icecream ! 3. Smooth out the lift paths every few hours. You are supposed to cater to my beginners, not frustrate them !!
Yes! Totally agree with the above. The main reason we havenít been much in the last two years. Did one wicked Wednesday last year with fresh snow, when Maltese was open and not many punters. Was an awesome day.

Sunday 17/6: lots of fresh snow around, tank hill has opened and ski patrol is inspecting Hut Run to the top with an expected open around 11am. Summit will be next

Well we decided to trust the LM report of 4cm, than 356cm at BB; I think they got it wrong too as it was much much better and was great skiing without a lot of grooming. Baw Baws trails tend to need more cover as the trails have more rock/ sticks, but when it's good it is truly sensational: it's such beautiful bush. Today should be good, looks like a big dump. Please BB give good reliable updates on the trails this season.

teckel: Three and a half metres!!! That would be epic!
Remember when the tips were full of kitchen updates which were never installed because of confusion between cm and mm ? The actual reported depth is 35 meters. They can turn off the slushy machine.

Snow was coming down when I left today...if the forecast comes through over night it maybe a struggle to get up the hill first thing...

No change since Darzee's post, except they may have made some tonight!
16/6/18 - 7:48pm
Any people on mountain to give an update of what it may be like tomorrow?
16/6/18 - 10:07am
Its looking good today (sat 16/6) still only Hut Run to tower 2, but they also have tank hill carpet open and the new toboggan carpet. Snow is still falling and if there is a decent drop tonight tank hill will open tomorrow

Looking fabulous today, thank you snow gods! 358cm of natural snow at Baw Baw according to report! Gear in car ready to go but where - LM or Baw Baw? Please Baw Baw, please update info! At this rate were heading to LM as the info is not clear enough, snow cams look good but are the trails even open?
